Working alongside architects Allies + Morrison, the brief was to provide visual enhancements to the concrete batching plant, which was closed for the duration of the Games, to create interest for the VIPs using the adjacent entrance to the Olympic Park. The Plant was illuminated in the London 2012 colour scheme using a combination of washes, accents and shadows; the resultant vibrant scheme utilises dichroic glass filters allowing the colour to shift softly from yellow to magenta.
